Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES) Test Method


This document defines capabilities and limitations of Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES) as it pertains to detection of suspect/counterfeit EEE parts and suggests possible applications to these ends. Additionally, this document outlines requirements associated with the application of AES including: operator training and requirements; sample preparation; data interpretation and reporting of data.


This document is intended to provide guidance for those unfamiliar with AES towards its use for detection of counterfeit EEE parts. Additionally it is intended to provide guidelines for the application of AES for operators and end users of the technique and to define the compliance requirements for laboratories using this technique.
